UMass Amherst Technology Innovation Challenge Business Plan Competition ($50k)

In Brief:

Create a full business plan for your technology-related venture and you could win $50k.

About the Competition:

    The Technology Innovation Challenge (TIC) promotes innovation education based on technology conceived by faculty, students, and alumni of UMass Amherst. The competition is limited to technology-based businesses, and is meant to encourage science and engineering students, in cooperation with management students, to think of commercial applications of their work. The goal is for interdisciplinary teams to conceptualize a product with regard to its scientific and technological design and then create a business plan for the product’s commercialization.

    Judges of the competition are entrepreneurs, legal experts, and consultants who volunteer their time to meet with students who are interested in marketing new ideas.
